4 BEDROOMS | 2 (1 full, 1 half ) BATHROOMS | 1736 SQUARE FEET
A rare opportunity to stake your claim in the historic, Girard Estates section of South Philadelphia! Even before entering this 2-story, brick exterior, colonial revival, twin, you are greeted by an extra wide, mature tree-lined section of W. Ritner St. and a neighborhood that conveys a feeling of being part of something special. It isn’t often residents move from this storied, multi-generational community, and the reasons why, are many. Unlike many of their South Philly neighbors, the homes here often possess extras like covered front porches, sizable rear yards and larger interior rooms. This 4 BR, 1.5 bath, 1730 sqft. property is no exception and a true shining example. Begin your journey through the double-door, vestibule entry (perfect for shoes, coats, hats, bags, etc.) and discover a large, sunlit living room with original hardwood floors and functioning pocket doors that continue into the dining room. Once there, take special note to the beautiful and unique full-wall, built-in cabinets (storage galore!). Move into the kitchen and find plenty of room for in-space dining, and access to a half-bath, a full (unfinished) basement and the wonderful rear porch/fenced in yard. On the second floor, you will discover a total of 4 bedrooms (all with fresh coats of neutral paint) and a top-to-bottom, newly renovated full-bath. Add to this, the comfort and convenience of central air ? but, wait! Let’s not forgot about the location! This home is one short block from Girard Park, across the street from the highly rated GAMP (Girard Academic Music Program) School, within walking distance of an abundance of shopping and dining (BJ’s, Home Depot, Acme, Walgreens and the famous Melrose Diner just to name a few) and also convenient to routes 76, 95, 611, 291 (straight shot to Philly Int’l Airport) and the Walt Whitman Bridge for swift access into New Jersey. For any devout sports fan, all major stadiums are all within easy reach, and for the potential movie buff in you, this home is only 1.5 blocks from where parts of Rocky II were filmed. Yes, this neighborhood is storied, indeed! Don’t miss this exceptional chance to make your own history in this delightful home and become part of this celebrated neighborhood.
